  4. the main reason we get tattoo is for OURSELVES. we don't get them for other people and we don't care what other people think. the bad vibes some of the mainstream people carry towards tattooing is their problem. the difference between tattooed peoples and the non-tattooed (plainskins) is that tattoo people don't care that others are plainskin ! your first tattoos so I hope that in time they bring you as much happiness and confidence that tattoos gave me and many of the people on this forum. tattoo has made my life experience that much richer. cheers

  5. Hi Helen, You need to keep calm and communicate with your artist. Your artist (at least most artists) want to do a great job and have satisfied customers! Sounds like there was a breakdown somewhere along the line. Good healthy communication will go a long way to sorting it out. Maybe call the shop?

  6. As an FYI, I have had bumps in my tattoos that lasted for 3+ months. They went away.

  7. I'm not sure what deal this is breaking and what you think you can do about it. You are much more liable to make it worse than make it better if you start screwing around with it trying to fix it. OCD and tattoos can be a bad combination. As everyone else said, tattoos aren't perfect. I had some purple that took a long time to heal, so be patient. Also, you could try some liquid vitamin E on it once a day (light application, more is NOT better) for a few weeks and see if that helps. Good luck

    Artist advice

    I checked her out on IG and her works looks great. It seems like you'll be able to get the coverup you want and need with this artist. Best of luck with your consult!

  9. All my work has flaws; ink loss from scabs pulling off, an ever slightly crooked line, etc. It's part of getting tattooed! Embrace the imperfection! The Japanese even have a word for it (wabi sabi). The flaws make your artwork that much more unique. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Hey @tjb...welcome to the forum. On the flip side, you are now part of a great community that's generally incredibly compassionate, open minded, and less judgmental than most people. The freakout will pass and you'll be planning your next one soon. :)

  14. You need to let it go, as @Gingerninja and @Alicia said. This obsessing is unhealthy and unproductive. Just enjoy your tattoo and start planning your next one.
